Looks like we're in the middle of the PAC. Whoops! No pun intended! Ouch
 
24. Ohio
> State debt per capita: $2,423 (17th lowest)
> Pct. without health insurance: 12.3% (17th lowest)
> Pct. below poverty line: 14.8% (17th highest)
> Unemployment: 9.1% (17th highest)

Ohio’s state revenue in the fiscal year of 2009 was the fourth-lowest in the country. In the same time period, the state spent $71 billion, nearly three times that amount per resident. Despite that fact, Ohio still has an AA+ credit rating and a below-average debt per capita. Ohio scores worse than average on unemployment, median income, foreclosures and poverty. The state does slightly better on graduation rates. Ohio also spends a higher portion of its budget on education than most states.

America's Most Miserable States-
 

5. Ohio

  • Well-being index score: 64.5
  • Life expectancy: 77.5 (13th lowest)
  • Obesity: 29.2 percent (16th highest)
  • Median household income: $45,090 (17th lowest)
  • Adult population with high school diploma or higher: 88.1 percent (24th highest)

Ohio ranks within the 10 least well-off states in four of the six categories considered by Gallup in its Well-Being Index. This includes life evaluation, emotional health, healthy behavior and work environment. The state ranks quite poorly when it comes to health metrics, as it has among the highest rates of cancer, diabetes and smoking in the country. Its residents’ life expectancy is also relatively low, at 77.5 years. Median household income is fairly low in the state and the poverty rate is somewhat high; yet neither of these metrics are among the country’s worst.

And I would hazard a guess that the City of Middletown ranks near the bottom of the municipalities in the state of Ohio. 
(After all, we are one of the 10 fastest dying cities in the nation.)
